that tunisia recently released a key suspect. poor libyan cooperation hampered the fbi's investigation. success here is a matter of justice. and it's also a matter of signalling to militants that there is no place for them to hide if they attack u.s. personnel. i will now turn to the distinguished ranking member, mr. engle for his opening remarks. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman for holding this important meeting. i hope we can use this as an opportunity to seriously examine the steps we need to take to prevent a repeat of the tragedy in benghazi rather than engaging in gotcha politics that make it more difficult to achieve this bipartisan goal. as the new rinking member, let me say on behalf of this committee, we would like to welcome you back and glad you are feeling better. this will likely be your final appearance before our committee and i want to take the opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate your outstanding and tireless efforts to represent our country in the international community. i have no doubt you will continue to serve our nation in some capacity as you have for
